Richmond, BC ...A Healthy Place To Live

Richmond has been named one of the healthiest cities in Canada. What is it that makes people live longer in Richmond? It probably has a lot to do with the fact that Richmond is flat  so people are active... walking and bike riding are easy. Being surrounded by dykes that include walking trails and bike paths also encourages people to be out enjoying the views of the Fraser River, Steveston, and Vancouver. No matter where you go you will notice people walking, running, biking, doing tai chi, swimming, golfing, playing tennis, lawn bowling, visiting the Olympic Oval, or attending an outdoor event. The weather is almost always perfect..almost.  The warm or sometimes hot summer days are usually followed by a breeze in the evening. The cooler and sometimes wetter winter days are mostly pleasant. Snowfall is very limited..maybe a week or two..but what a beautiful sight when it does happen. Everyday living is easy.  What a great place to live!
